Respect & Gratitude For All Involved!!!

Postby Jerry Moll » Mon Oct 28, 2019 10:07 am

It has been a long eleven-day marathon. Yes we are all tired, but our most prominent thoughts right now are those of gratitude and respect. It takes a tremendous effort to put a cumulative total of 522 casts, 1,660 dogs, in the woods, and stay the course night after night for a week and a half.

Both the PKC Youth World Championship and the PKC World Championship entries were up again this year. The 1,344 entries in the World were the sixth largest in PKC history, and only 237 entries from a new record. The total awards handed out for these two events was over $287,200. WOW!!

Hat’s off to David & Mary Dial, Clayton Dial and Vern Carter. Thank you to Tom Wilson, Shane Patton, Kristi Denny, Mike Hensley and James Love for helping with the daily cast draw and to everyone else that played a part on the Hunt Management end. Thanks to those who served as Satellite Hunt Directors, Panel Members and Full-Time Judges night after night; Anthony King, Brad Durham, Bruce Sommer, Bud Hood, Dale Sandell, Gerald Yoder, Jay Hartwick, Jeff Nelson, John Ervin, Justin Wallace, Mike Dowler, Mike Hensley, Shane Reynolds, Tom Wilson and Willie Thrift.

Huge thanks to all of the hunting and non-hunting guides from the Salem, Claremont, Sesser, McLeansboro, Ramsey, Geff and Brownstown Clubs. We also appreciate those who served as hunting judges on the early rounds. Every night of the World Championship, we needed 20-24 Late Round judges, many thanks to those who stepped up and helped when they could have easily went to bed instead. An extra THANK YOU to those who volunteered to stay and serve as judges for Friday night, when they could have headed on home.

The 2019 PKC Youth World Championship and World Championship were both very successful and awesome events, and the main reason for that is YOU! Thanks for joining us in Salem!!!
Prepare yourself and your hound. Hunt the dog, read the Blue Book, and your Good Book!

Thx to all involved to put on great event. Madi & Hunter are already wanting to come for Youth hunt. I plan on bringing camper next year & plan on being there for most of 10 days to try our luck. Take care, Ron.
